The Cowboys' backup quarterback situation was basically a nightmare in 2015. After Tony Romo went down with a broken collarbone, Brandon Weeden, Kellen Moore and Matt Cassel combined to go 1-11.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has spent years looking for a capable backup -- and a potential replacement for Romo -- but he's found nothing. That could change this offseason, because two former first-round picks really want to play for the Cowboys in 2016.
Not only is Johnny Manziel hoping to end up in Dallas for the 2016 season, but so is Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. According to Yahoo Sports, Dallas is atop Griffin's "preferred destinations should he become available," and Griffin is almost definitely going to become available.
If the Redskins were to cut Griffin this offseason, it would cost them exactly zero dollars in salary cap space.
Assuming that doesn't happen, there's a good chance RG3 will be available soon.
Although Jones has spent a lot of time over the past three years talking about Manziel, he's also likes Griffin, who was the second-overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
The game Jones is referring to was a 38-31 Redskins win in 2012, where Griffin threw for 304 yards and four touchdowns.
The Redskins closed the 2015 season in Dallas on Sunday and Griffin made sure to say "Hi" to Cowboys coach Jason Garrett after Washington's 34-23 win.
